Gorilla Woman

Once again, I had a Great Day with my Sister Michele ( taking pictures and having Sis time!  She brought a special coat with her today.  It is a Gorilla fur coat that her Grandmother Naomi Wimmenauer gave to her before she passed away.  I am totally against the harm of animals for furs, but this coat was made about 60 years ago when times were different and the wearing of fur was not an issue.  Just let me say, when she said she had a gorilla fur my first thought was...What???  But it was the most beautiful thing I had ever seen and knowing it belonged to her grandmother and it had so much history behind it, made it even more special to touch.  Sis, I hope this picture will always remind you of your Beautiful Grandmother are the spitting image of her...a Beauty to Behold!!!


  1. A beautiful photo...and a heart-warming tribute :D Am totally with you with the fur issue, but as you say, it was made 60 years ago...and I can't think of a better way to honour the animal who gave it's life for the coat, than to cherish the fur, as your sister does, and to take good care of it.

  2. Thank you so much for yet another great photo shoot with you, Sis! Also, thank you for paying tribute to my late Grandmother, Naomi. She was beautiful and amazing. My Grandfather always told me that I looked exactly like her, acted like her and spent money like her lol. I just love this photo! You out did yourself once again!

    Love you,
